Raptured away from the tribulations would be nice but not scriptural.
"Just a few scriptures below"
This short study is by no means happy news. However some of our brothers and sisters will be in the tribulations , some will be killed, some will be delivered.
The main reason for the "rapture" doctrine is to be raptured away from the tribulations because you are such a nice, holy church person. ( not )
Tell me, why would the church people, who don't even keep the 10 Commandments be, as they say, raptured from the tribulations, when many of the righteous people of God had to go through it, even unto death?
Remember: almost all the Prophets and Apostles were killed, and Yeshua / Jesus.
Scripture does not support this doctrine.
You had to be in the tribulations to come out of it.
1Thes.3[ 4] For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.
2Tim.3[ 12] Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution .
Matt.13[ 21] Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
John.16[ 33] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Acts.14[ 22] Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
Rom.5[ 3] And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
] Who shall separate us from
the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine,
or nakedness, or peril, or sword?[
36] As it is written, For thy sake
we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.[ 38] For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,[ 39] Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
2Thes.1[ 4] So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure :
 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;
Rev.1[ 9] I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Rom.12[ 12] Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
Matt.24[ 21] For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be .
 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Mark.13[ 24] But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
Rev.7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Rev.13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Rev.15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
Rev.6: And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?[11 ] And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
Rev.20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received [his] mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Rev.17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints , and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

Dan.12[ 1] And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
Dan.12[ 7] And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people , all these things shall be finished.
 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand
MATTHEW 24 :15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
19] And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!  But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:[21 ] For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.  And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened .

54] When they heard these things,
they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.
 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.
 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,
 And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.
 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.
Acts.14[ 19] And there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who persuaded the people, and, having stoned Paul, drew him out of the city, supposing he had been dead.
21] I speak as concerning reproach,
as though we had been weak. Howbeit whereinsoever any is bold, (I speak foolishly,)
I am bold also.
 Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I.
 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft. Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.
 Now faith
is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
 For by it the elders obtained a good report.
 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
 Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.
 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.
 By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.
 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.
 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.
 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.
 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.
 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:
 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:
 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:
 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;
 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:
 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
